Beware, never judge a book by its cover. C. Wain’s debut novel A Prayer for the Necromancer is the first volume in his book series titled The Shinigami Tomes. A Prayer for the Necromancer tells the tale of Kaze who is “a mage of sorts.” It opens in a room at an inn, and although readers aren’t told the time period in which this fantasy is based, they will be keen to note that it does not take place in our own universe, but instead it takes place in a universe called Oar where there are four dimensions, the New World being one of them and another being Blacuir, a world of darkness.
C. Wain paints for us a vivid world full of action, adventure, and the familiar struggle between good and evil. There are certain things in this book that fans of manga and anime will quickly recognize, such as the way spells are cast, the Shinigami world, and so on. I know dark fantasy isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it is an acquired taste, but after reading I can honestly say that I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. A Prayer for the Necromancer is a new take on the traditional western fantasy genre; it fuses medieval fantasy with eastern mythos. While I was reading A Prayer for the Necromancer I found myself at the edge of my seat, audibly cursing when time and time again the main character was thrown into danger. It is a worthwhile read.
